Glyph of the word 'hole'.


  • (n.) neck

A male take ei i ia pokane o hole.
“I shall wear you about my neck.”

Notes: Happy Caturday! :D

Today’s cat word comes from this picture:

Keli as a stole.

My wife Erin is fond of taking our cat and putting her about her shoulders as if she’s a stole. Keli is actually amused by this. What she likes best is getting off, where Erin has to bend down so that her back is flat. Sometimes Keli decides this is a good place to sit, and she’ll sit there comfortably for minutes while Erin struggles to maintain the appropriate posture.

I have no idea what the deal with this iku is. The Kamakawi face is there, as is the glyph for ho. I guess it’s positioned in such a way that it indicates where the neck…starts…? Or ends? I don’t know. It doesn’t make any sense at all to me. It’s okay, though. I give it a 6/10.

    Ha, ha! Yes, that’s it. That was the plan the whole time. ;)
